    Ministry may take 'India' out of BCCI

    Yes, that's possible as there are strong indications from the sports ministry, which is determined to ensure that the cashrich board adheres to the guidelines meant for all national sports federations ( NSFs).

    And if the issue reaches a flashpoint, the BCCI would not be able to field a 'national' team. It could also mean that Mahendra Singh Dhoni and Co. would possibly no more represent their country. If the richest sports body of the country remains adamant, it could lead to a legal battle with the government.

    BCCI, at a special general body meeting on Saturday in Mumbai, decided not to reply to the ministry's letter and decided that it would go for legal opinion if pressurised further.
    In its 78-year-old existence, the BCCI has probably never been dependent on the sports ministry.

    The answer is fairly simple; BCCI do not want to be answerable to anyone, they want to be the ones calling all the shots.

    Yeah but how much does being a NSF take away from BCCI? essentially they are a national board eh?

    Among other restrictions, I think they'd have to open up their books to government scrutiny, allow the government representation on their board (think Suresh Kalmadi taking liberties with the BCCI funds, the horror), adhere to age and tenure restrictions for office bearers etc. Obviously these won't be immediate concerns, but its a slippery slope once they agree to give up autonomy. There's only so much time before the government decides to poke its nose into the affairs of the cash rich body.

    Think PCB, Faisal. The President is the patron of the board, IIRC, and you can see for yourself where the government appointed officials have taken Pakistan cricket.

    The BCCI is far from perfect, but the alternative is worse.

    Athlai doesn't lie. And he doesn't do sarcasm either, so you know it's true!

    Makes a lot more sense when you throw in the PCB example....might as well stay an independent entity in that case. The whole of Pakistan wants it that way for our board....

    Although i bet you Indian government is no where near as bad as the Pak government at the moment in terms of corruption and all.... but still government run affairs in our countries are fishy.

    G.I Joe summed it up perfectly. While the BCCI are (presumably) a corrupt organisation, having the government control their affairs might be jumping from the frying pan into the fire. I don't care how this ends up, as long as the team does not get screwed in the process.
